Why This Book is Special?

Braja M. Das is one of the best writer in Soil Mechanics and Soil Engineering and is also in the field of civil engineering. Now its Khaled Sobhan another famous writer.
Both of them intended to write the best in them about the basic principles of Geotechnical Engineering. Different basic theorems are more illustrated and more examples related to theorems are included. A lot of background information was given but it did not overburden the basic themes of teaching students.
This is a very good book for the students who wants to learn and for the teachers who want to teach. As it is the latest edition it contains the very latest information.
The presentation of this book is excellent. It presents several theorems,discussions,problems and solved examples.The examples and problems given are closely related to the real life problems.It will help the engineers and students to gather more knowledge and apply them directly in the field of geotechnical engineering (generally called as Geotech by students and teachers).

Geotech is one of the major subject of civil engineering and therefore every civil engineering student need to go through it. This book is a good,comprehensive book on geotech. Texts are easy to read and understand. Therefore it is a must have geotech book for the students and course teachers.
